Would You Decorate with Barbie's Designer Furniture?

My latest piece for HGTV.ca...

In celebration of Barbie's fiftieth anniversary, the Bay recently opened The Barbie Signature Shop at their Toronto Queen Street location where shoppers can experience the ultimate Barbie lifestyle extravaganza for a limited engagement of two months.

I visited The Barbie Signature Shop this past weekend and this pop-up store showcased everything from designer Barbie dolls and clothing to furniture and home furnishings. Canadian designer Glenn Dixon designed an extensive collection of Barbie furniture and home furnishings to include sofas, armchairs, ottomans, occasional chairs. vases, trays, boxes, frames, accent pillows, mirrors, bowls, decorative objects, bedding, sheets, pillows, shams, duvet covers, bed skirts, towels, vanity sets, shower curtains, bath mats. candles, lamps, sconces, and chandeliers. If you could visit Barbie's Dream House these are the furnishings and furniture that you would find in her home. Although, this collection may not be for everyone I thought that overall these pieces were fun, contemporary and chic.
